As an SEO agency that specialises in education, we offer a comprehensive range of services to make your website more visible in Google. From keyword research and optimisation to content creation and link building, we’ll develop an SEO strategy to help you reach the top of Google – and top of the class.

Education social media marketing

Social media can be a powerful marketing tool for secondary, further and higher education, helping to build a community and talk directly to your target audience.

Incorporating social media into the education marketing mix can help to boost open day attendance and enrolment. As organic and paid social media marketing specialists, we will build your audience and drive traffic to your website with interesting and engaging content.

Proactive and reactive public relations

Our education PR specialists will work with you to develop an ongoing drumbeat of good news stories and position you as thought leaders. We’ll also find opportunities for you to comment on wider topics of interest within the education sector.

Digital marketing strategy

We’ll advise on the best digital channels based on your goals and target audience.

By understanding who your audience is and where they spend their time online, and how visible your competitors are, we can develop a full digital marketing strategy that gets results.

Crisis communications

A crisis can happen quickly in the press and social media, and how you respond as an organisation can have a long-term impact on your reputation. That’s why we recommend that every business prepares for a potential crisis scenario. We can work with you to build a crisis comms strategy and provide advice and media relations support during a crisis.

Media training

Looking for help preparing for a big interview? We’ll ensure you’re fully prepped to face the broadcast, print and digital media and ensure that you are ready to answer every question with confidence.

Email marketing

Regular communication helps to keep your organisation front of mind. We’ll develop an email marketing campaign to share relevant content with your audience, from your latest news and charity drives to your next open day.
